Global 5G Landscape, Q4 2018

The telecoms industry is on the cusp of the 5G era. With hundreds of trials conducted, theory is giving way to reality as dozens of operators announce launch plans and some begin offering services commercially.

This first quarterly review of global 5G developments provides a concise, tracker-style deliverable, presenting key metrics and forecasts in an easy-to-access and engaging way. GSMA Intelligence has aggregated the latest data on 5G connections, adoption and coverage, as well as information on network trials/launches and spectrum assignments.
